ACQUISITION OF SHARES UNDER ACCELERATED VESTING OF A PORTION OF PRE-IPO CASH AWARDS

 

Network International Holdings plc (LSE: NETW) (the Company) has on 7thSeptember 2020 (the Acquisition Date), accelerated   the vesting of a portion of the final tranche of the pre-IPO cash awards for the Group CEO and the Group CFO on the condition that they acquire ordinary shares in the Company (the Shares). This is in line with the corresponding ordinary resolution which was voted in favour (99.78%) by shareholders at the Annual General Meeting. The wider leadership team was since then invited to participate in this programme on similar terms.

 

The number of shares acquired by each PDMR are summarised below:

 

Name

Number of Shares Acquired

Simon Haslam

200,295

Rohit Malhotra

167,536

Samer Soliman

171,565

Andrew Key

79,348

 

The acquired Shares will be subject to a holding period and released on the same terms and conditions as the relevant portion of the pre-IPO cash awards for which vesting was accelerated.

 

Participants will be entitled to dividends equivalent by reference to dividend record dates between the Acquisition Date and the expiry of the holding period, but released to each PDMR at the end of the holding period.

Considering the recent acquisition of DPO Group and the terms of the non-pre-emptive equity placing, the Remuneration Committee (the Committee) determined that the share price at which equity was raised through an accelerated book building process at £4.10 (the ABB price), was a fair and appropriate price for the acquisition of the Shares for both shareholders and management. It shows commitment to investment in the equity of the Company on the same basis as third party investors and it supports the Committee's desire for management to make a material long-term equity investment in the businesses they manage. It should be noted that this is a change of approach in determining the number of Shares from previously disclosed in April 2020 (i.e. an average of up to 30 trading days preceding the Acquisition Date) as at that time the share price was considerably lower than the ABB price.

A copy of the FCA notification form in respect of the acquisition of shares by each PDMR, as required under the EU Market Abuse Regulation and in the prescribed format, is set out below.
